One of my many resolutions this year is to get to grips with this blog. I started with the intention of providing regular, informative, informal updates based on my experiences of France, the French, life in general and the property market in particular but last year I got side-tracked by the purchase of a new house and I’m ashamed to see that my last posting was in October!
And talking of being side-tracked, as I sat down to write this I started playing with the ‘tools’ on the website instead and found this new widget where readers can subscribe to receive updates by email – so here it is, at the top right-hand corner! I would love as many people as possible to subscribe – and it will encourage me to write more often (and hopefully with better content!)
Finally, the main reason for writing today is to mention that next weekend is The France Show at Earl’s Court, London. “You can expect top-notch tutored wine tastings, inspirational cookery demonstrations, a lively French market and live music to indulge your love of France. Get information on buying property, learning the language, holiday ideas and hear about real life experiences of relocation in our enlightening talks. Those interested in making the move to France will love browsing through the thousands of properties for all budgets in the UK’s largest French property exhibition. There will be so much to see and do at the show that one day there may not be enough!” (OK, I pinched the last bit from their website at www.thefranceshow.com but as I see they are using an article I wrote (albeit buried on page 2 of the property section) I am sure they won’t mind!). I’ll be on the FrenchEntree stand on Friday 13th & Saturday 14th Jan and look forward to saying hello to anybody who is passing.
Happy 2012 - and don't forget to subscribe!
